The Profoto D1 Air 500Ws 2-Monolight Studio Kit w/o Remote (90-120V & 200-240V) gives you a total of 1000Ws of Profoto digital lighting power, with color temperature and exposure consistency across the entire 7 f-stop power range (thanks to the dual mode SMPS capacitor charging technology).

        Good strobes but color temperature cons

              After purchasing this set and reading all of the glowing reviews I am very disappointed in the color consistency of these strobes. Upon receipt I ran a test and discovered that the strobes fluctuated from around 6100 K at full power to around 5500K at low power, exact numbers were:
              Head A –
              10-6160K
              9-5950K
              8-5790K
              7-5700K
              6-5700K
              5-5600K
              4-5490K

              Head B –
              10-6080K
              9-5940K
              8-5770K
              7-5750K
              6-5740K
              5-5620K
              4-5540K

              I sent the heads in for repair, thinking perhaps I had received a bad set and was told by repair that that much color variance, 600 K, is within specs. I was told that with the B1 strobes in normal mode the allowable fluctuation is 150 K from full to low power. So I suppose they are nice strobes but be sure to bring your color meter and gels if color accuracy is much of a concern. I haven't had them long enough to know how they will hold up.

                I use these lights at my studio and also on location. The light is 100% consistent and the recycle time keeps up with my shooting 100% of the time. I just purchased a second set of the 500s and I recommend them to any professional photographers that have the means. They are not cheap, but truly, you get what you pay for. I would buy these lights again and again. I also shoot with Alien Bees to light my background and although they are also a quality product for the money, there is no comparison in the end result.

                  This is my second D1 Air 500ws kit...cheaper than buying lights individually! Since I shelled out for a second kit, guess that should be testament to how I feel about the quality and performance. I now have a 4-light capability and the possibilities are endless.

                  Comments about Profoto D1 Air 500Ws 2-Monolight Studio Kit w/o Remote (90-120V & 200-240V):

                  I recently naught the D1 air 500 kit and I have used in on about 10 shoots so far and it's been amazing to use .
                  Profoto has up the game making a smaller and lighter unit than the Profoto Compact r. The first thing to note is that the bags are much better designed and built, with custom foam cut out for housing each lights firmly in place. The units are very well constructed In the tradition of Profoto.
                  There is however one ting that you may find annoying and it that units make a constant whistling low tone once it is plugged into the an outlet. This doesn't affect the performance of the unit which can stay plugged in for hours.
                  Lastly be prepared to buy light stands because the ones that came with the kit isn't good enough for rigorous use.
                  Love. The units and will buy again soon.

                      Excellent light, though I agree with others that the power cords are not the best, nor are the stands, but you save so much money on the lights when buying the kit that it doesn't matter...just buy two new stands (and they aren't that bad, just flimsy).
